This animation shows how a concussion affects brain cells on a cellular level after a particular type of traumatic brain injury.
Often called a coup-contracoup injury, rapid acceleration/deceleration causes movement of the brain within the skull, which damages the neural pathways that receive and send messages to other parts of brain and body. These types of injuries often happen as a result of a fall, a car accident, or an assault.
